Robert Fisk: So, I asked the UN secretary general, isn't it time for a war crimes tribunal?

It's a wrap, a doddle, an Israeli ceasefire just in time for Barack Obama to have a squeaky-clean inauguration with all the world looking at the streets of Washington rather than the rubble of Gaza. Condi and Ms Livni thought their new arms-monitoring agreement – reached without a single Arab being involved – would work. Ban Ki-moon welcomed the unilateral truce. The great and the good gathered for a Sharm el-Sheikh summit. Only Hamas itself was not consulted. Which led, of course, to a few wrinkles in the plan. First, before declaring its own ceasefire, Hamas fired off more rockets at Israel, proving that Israel's primary war aim – to stop the missiles – had failed. Then Cairo shrugged off the deal because no one was going to set up electronic surveillance equipment on Egyptian soil. And not one European leader travelling to the region suggested the survivors might be helped if Israel, the EU and the US ended the food and fuel siege of Gaza

Israeli War Crimes Tribunal (Comentario de un ciudadano)
Actually, the Israeli cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians and deliberate destruction of Gaza in front of the cameras is worse than the Nazi atrocities of WWII because the Nazi crimes came to light only after WWII. The Israelis are remorseless and cruel despite the daily condemnation by people all over the world. Just imagine, what would the Israelis do if there were no cameras or Internet like WWII?
